All our tours to mount Kilimanjaro climbs include airport transfers. We pick you up at Kilimanjaro International Airport (JRO) or any other airport near Arusha and Kilimanjaro as per your itinerary plan and take you to your pre-climb hotel in Moshi or Arusha, then back again at the end of your itinerary. In short, we take care of your air transfers and accommodation, before and after your Mount Kilimanjaro climb.
NB: All transfers and accommodation will be planned before the start of your tour to Mount Kilimanjaro. If you choose to book a transfer with Tranquil Kilimanjaro, you will be met by our guides at Kilimanjaro Airport Arrivals. Our team will be holding a sign bearing your names and the Tranquil Journeys name/logo to avoid any confusion at the airport on your first day to arrive in Tanzania.

Your Return Airport Transfers
After your Mount Kilimanjaro climbing tour, we will make arrangements to drop you off at the Kilimanjaro International Airport, Arusha Airport or any arranged Airport as per your itinerary and arrangements with the Tranquil Journeys team.
